IHG Rewards Club, the loyalty program of InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), has announced their latest PointBreaks promotion, making hotels available at discounted award rates of 5,000, 10,000 or 15,000 points for stays until October 31, 2018! In the past, many of the best deals were sold out quickly, so check out the deal below and book your bargain getaway quickly!
For this quarter, IHG Rewards Club is offering more than 150 hotels worldwide at a discount, including several high-end InterContinental and Indigo hotels. They are highlighting the following properties as some of the most exciting opportunities:
- InterContinental Doha
- Indigo San Antonio Riverwalk
- Indigo Orange Beach
- Holiday Inn Brighton Seafront
- Holiday Inn Resort Dead Sea
I haven’t staid at any of them, but I appreciate having some high-end brands like InterContinental or Indigo represented as well as hotels in attractive vacation destinations!
I have stayed at the Crown Plaza Galeria Manila and it shows the downside with this type of promotion: they are often not the most popular hotels in town, are in a bad location or it’s low-season. The Crowne Plaza Manila is far from where most visitors to Manila would want to be, an older, but well maintained hotel and it’s rainy season in Manila, with almost daily “heavy rain” public alerts! But you do get a roughly 30% discount on the prevailing cash rates!
Interesting hotels I found on the list are the Holiday Inn Express Dresden in the heart of the beautiful, historic German city, the InterContinental Buenos Aires in Argentina and the Holiday Inn Montmatre in Paris, the city of love!
As in every IHG PointBreaks promotion, you are limited to make two reservations per participating hotels. This limitation was introduced to prevent a handful of people to book the whole inventory of PointBreaks rooms – and then cancel last minute. You can book as many nights per reservation as are available. You are of course also not allowed to re-sell your reservations – or your IHG Rewards account might be closed, forfeiting all your points.
If you don’t have enough points for your dream trip, you can currently purchase IHG Rewards points with a bonus of up to 100%, or for as little as 0.5 cents/point, so the PointBreaks hotels would start at only $25! Check for your bonus and purchase points here! Or you can sign up for one of the IHG Rewards credit cards – the sign-up bonus is enough for a few free nights!
Despite the grumbling of many long-term IHG Rewards Club members and bloggers, the IHG PointBreaks promotion remembers a very good deal with good discounts on a large number of hotels. I hope you get lucky and find a deal that works for your travel plans – happy hunting! You can review the full list of available hotels and book them here!
You can also find a very handy searchable table and map at PointsWithACrew!
